If I Take a Friday as Annual Leave Will Saturday and Sunday Also Be Included in the Annual Leave?


Question:

Hi, I have a question regarding annual leave in the UAE. I read that it is based on Calendar Days and not working days. what does this mean? If I take a Friday as annual leave will Saturday and Sunday also be included in the annual leave?

Answer: 

As per the UAE labor law, an employee is entitled to 30 days of leave upon completion of one year of service, and 2 days per month if the service is less than one year and more than 6 months. In calculating the duration of the annual leave, the holidays are included if they fall within the annual leave period unless the company policy or employment agreement states otherwise.
